A Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department deputy has been charged with committing lewd acts with a 15-year-old girl, authorities said Thursday afternoon.

Deputy Kenneth Alexander, 45, allegedly met the girl in 2010 while he was working on patrol duty out of the Marina del Rey station, the department said.

He is suspected of committing the lewd acts in View Park while he was off duty, the Sheriff's Department said in a statement.

An informant called the Los Angeles County child-abuse hotline and reported Alexander. He was arrested but was released after posting $15,000 bail, authorities said.

Alexander is scheduled for an appearance Nov. 10 at the Airport Courthouse.
